Yet Another NG from Kalifornistan

Johnny Dakar turned me on to this forum.

I have a 1969 T120R; one of the more reliable bikes I own, which says a lot, right? I have five fine examples of Brit Iron, including a Triton, a Velocette Venom, a Norvil Production Racer, and a Norton Commando.

I'll just look around for a while, and see where I might contribute.

Thanks! I've been a right shifter all my life, and only just learned "wrong" foot shifting a few years back, when I bought my BMW R100GS Paris Dakar. It's been interesting.

I've always loved the Speed Triple, but the closest I have is a couple of Ducati Monsters.

One of them is my "signature" bike:

Nothing wrong with Monsters, except they're missing a cylinder...

Beautiful monster by the way!

Thanks again. If there's any interest, I can post pics of some of my others (but for some weird reason, I don't have any current pics of the Bonnie ).
